I'm home

Well, it's been a long 2 years. I've had my ups and I've had my downs in France, especially trying to deal with Ulcerative Colitis, but I've survived and now I'm back home in Australia.

So medicine wise I'm down to 15mg Pred. I'm trying to get it down as low as possible with loosing bowel control. There's still bleeding, not a lot, just a tiny bit. This time around I never really got totally rid of the bleeding, except when I was on 50mg. I'm not keen to go up that high for a while at least anyway.

I've been back in Oz for 2 weeks now, so I'm hoping that the stress of the move and everything else will start to lesson as life get back to normal. This in turn I hope will make my bowel start to behave a bit better. Time will tell. Fingers crossed (again!!!).

It's funny, being back home. It's like 2 years in France never happened. You know when you come back from holiday, sometimes it hard to believe that you were ever a dream...very strange. I never thought that 2 years overseas would feel like that. I also can't believe that it went by that fast.

Don't hold your breath though if you think that now I'm home I'll stop whinging about UC. If anything I might get worse as I know the doctors and specialist know exactly what I'm saying :D
